OLD APPLE TREE

 

Old apple tree

low and round,

trunk so squat

you guess the rest

is standing underground.

 

Sunken barn

beside the road,

waving boards

cut short by fire, or

lowered by the years.

 

Apples tart and dry,

building falling down,

along the graveyard road

just above the town.


           -Ron Singer
